We’ve  just returned from New Zealand.  Part of our trip included a personally escorted tour from Christchurch to Queenstown with Canterbury Trails. Irene was our guide for 3 days. From beginning to end she was very knowledgeable , accommodating of our schedule and very good company. We especially loved our time at Mt Cook and Irene taking us trekking up the Hooker Valley. Along the way we stopped for coffee and wine and it really was a great way to see the country.

Guide Tia is exceptional..she should be called 5 star girl. Arthurs Pass was great, we saw lots of Kea and took some super hikes. Tia was very knowledgeable about all the plant life and the surroundings.

A great, casual guided tour, where we able to learn a lot of information about the area and discover things we’d have never known about if we tried to do it ourselves. Thanks John and Canterbury Trails.
